Happy Anniversary Hero Arts!

Hero Arts 45th Anniversary Hop

45 years! HUGE congrats to Hero Arts and their amazing team! It was such an incredible honor to be invited to celebrate with Hero Arts this past weekend in Richmond, CA. The name Hero Arts has always stood for innovation and integrity. The kindness and caring spirit that Aaron shares with all of us in this industry is heart-warming!

To hear Aaron share the story from beginning to current day was incredibly inspiring!

We learned how they use an earth-friendly manufacturing process which helps keep our earth green and products chemical and toxin free!

Projects featured creamy Reactive Inks, high-quality card stock, and From the Vault stamps!

and to think… there were additional projects to the ones shown above, all of which were accomplished in about six hours over the two days. The combination of fun, interactive designs along with the opportunity to use so many of the new products was so much fun! We hope you enjoy the return of the “From the Vault” series of stamps and dies, as well as the buttery new inks! You can find them here.

Kudos to our amazing teachers Janette Kausen, Debi Adams and Ilina Crouse!

Thank you Hero Arts for being such an inspiring leader in this industry I love! Thank you for the many years of bringing joy to this crafty community! – Ellen

    I love seeing the cards you all made with the stamps from the vault. Seeing quite a few Hero Arts stamps gives me some ideas for pulling them out more often. I love that frog.

    It’s good to hear that they are an Eco friendly company.

    Ellen, you wrote a wonderful tribute to Hero Arts in your blog. You and others have used the word “integrity” in reference to HA. A characteristic of very few businesses these days.
    Congrats! Aaron and the entire HA organization. Nicely done Ellen.
